LINKING BUSINESSES with QUALIFIED EMPLOYEES
If you’re an employer, you know how difficult it can be to find skilled, dedicated employee’s willing to perform certain tasks. Through FRA’s Employment Services, we can help by matching employer’s needs with individuals who are ready to work. People who experience a disability want to work, employers need to fill positions and FRA is here to link the two.

We understand that businesses may have concerns about the cost of hiring someone with a disability to work in their company. There is no cost to the employer because our services are 100% free. Support is individual-based around work-related goals that focus on meeting employment expectations while helping the employee obtain the maximum level of independence within their job.

BENEFITS TO YOU, THE EMPLOYER
